November 27, 1942

The Faculty of the University met in the President's Office
Friday, November 27, 1942. President Donovan presided. Members
present were Paul P. Boyd, Alvin E. Evans, W. D. Funkhouser, James H.
Graham. Frank D. Peterson. William S. Taylor, Edward Wiest. and Leo M.
Chamberlain. Professor L. J. Horlacher was also present.

The minutes of November 18 were read and approved.

The Faculty heard a petition from Gamma Tau Alpha, a local
fraternity, in which permission was asked to install a chapter of Zeta
Beta Tau, national Jewish social fraternity. Dean T. T. Jones recom-
mended the approval of this petition. After some discussion of the
membership of the fraternity and-of the amount of dues involved for
each member, the request was approved.

The following report from the Rules Committee was adopted by
the Faculty:

"On April 28, 1942, the Faculty of the College of Arts
and Sciences made recommendation to the University Faculty
concerning procedures for pre=classification of students and
on the classification of junior transfer students who score
less than 25% on the University entrance tests. These matters

were referred to the Rules Committee by the University Faculty
for study and report.

The proposals on pre=c1assification seem designed especially

to meet the problems of the College of Arts and Sciences. They
concern principally the extension of the advisory system so
that every student will have a private conference with his ade

viser before registration. The committee recommends, therefore.
the following:

1. During the present unsettled times it will be unwise
to make radical changes in our registration and

classification procedures. However, we favor the
fullest development of these pro-classification
procedures that are found appropriate for the
various colleges by their faculties, and recommend
this be done.

2. The committee recommends that the Arts and Sciences
Faculty's proposal that students who transfer as
juniors to the university and score less than 25%
on the University entrance tests be not classified
as juniors, be altered to read as follows:

A student who transfers to the University as a
junior and scores less than 25% on the entrance
tests will be classified as a junior conditionally.
The continuance of junior classification will de~
pend on the student's making a standing of 1, or
more. on his first quarter's work."

On recommendation of the College of Arts and Sciences, the follow—
ing new courses were approved:

English 50a. Elementary Russian (5) II An introduction to
Russian pronunciation and the simpler grammatical forms. Elemenv
tary drill in the colloquial Russian with Special emphasis on
Soviet usages and modern urban and industrial and military termsa

The Faculty approved the petition of George T. Bailey, who ran
quested that he be allowed full credit for courses in which he is pass~
ing this quarter. Mr. Bailey stated that he left school to join the
Navy, one day before the close of the required eight weeks' period.
This request was approved, subject to confirmation of his enlistment
in the Navy and the date of his leaving”
